Vet Kicked Out of Six Flags for Wearing Patriotic Shirt
Meanwhile, as some in New Jersey fly the flag of ISIS, others are not allowed into amusement parks because of their patriotic shirts:
Mario Alejandro was ready for a fight when he was part of the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003 as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Where he did not expect a fight was at Six Flags Great Adventure while taking his children there for a birthday party.
But due to the shirt that his family bought him for Father’s Day, a fight is exactly what the 33-year-old veteran from Woodbridge says he encountered while attempting to enter the theme park on Saturday. …
In June, Alejandro’s family gave him several shirts they had purchased from the The Reconnaissance Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps to support Recon Marines and their families, as a Father’s Day gift for him.
Alejandro loves the patriotic shirts. Who can blame him?
But then he tried wearing one at Six Flags.
“I was walking in through the gate with my wife and kids, who were in front of me, when a security guard grabbed me and said: ‘I can’t let you into the park with that shirt on. That shirt’s offensive,’” Alejandro said on Tuesday. “I said that it’s not offensive, it’s a military shirt. I told him that I am an Iraq veteran… I served in the war. But he said: ‘I don’t care, you have to take that off… or you need to buy another shirt to put over it.’”
When Alejandro refused, he was thrown out of the park.
Anyone wonder why so many vets have issues with depression these days?
Here’s how he should have dressed so as to guarantee he would be welcome in the park and everywhere else he might want to go in a country run by liberals:
